Never forget we are in a war
The battle is about choosing love and kindness over fear and cruelty.
Our training happens in daily practice. Interactions with store clerks. Frustration in traffic. Family dynamics. We practice love and kindness in these small things, so that when evil scores a big win we are already trained to respond.
We are very much a part of this battle, and it can be easy to get discouraged. It takes intention to choose a side.
